Give Now

Stronger Truer Sewanee has already enhanced the Sewanee community through upgraded athletic facilities, new residence halls, and a magnificent Sewanee Inn. During the remainder of the campaign, we will raise new resources for a wellness and recreation facility that provides a much-needed fitness center and moves health services to the center of campus. We will develop the University Avenue corridor and the Sewanee Village, creating new services and amenities for students, their families, visitors, and Sewanee residents.


Every gift to the campaign will help Sewanee become a stronger and truer version of itself, meeting the needs of today's students. Gifts to the campaign through the Sewanee Fund will make an immediate impact and may be designated to current use to enhance and sustain Sewanee’s inspiring campus, Domain, and village. You can foster citizenship and healthy choices through vibrant student life programming, athletics and wellness programs, and outreach and service. While a gift at any level will help Sewanee build an even more harmonious, strong, and true community, these benchmarks can help guide your gift:

  • Join the YSR Club for a minimum gift of $100 or support your favorite team with a gift to cover travel or equipment costs.
  • Sponsor a student’s outreach trip for $3,500.
  • Cover the activities of SWAG (Sewanee Wellness Action Group), a peer health education program, for one year with a gift of $5,000.

If you are interested in a gift that goes beyond current-use dollars, you may want to give to endowment, a capital project, or make a planned gift. While gifts of any size are welcome and appreciated, naming opportunities begin at $50,000. Named endowments can be created to support scholarships, internships, faculty fellowships, endowed chairs, or programs and program-related activities that create opportunity, reinforce academic distinction, enhance the Sewanee experience, and educate tomorrow's church leaders. 

Commitments made before June 30, 2019, can be counted in the Stronger Truer Sewanee campaign, with pledge payments to be completed by June 30, 2022.
